A quote worth contemplating
As his daughters, ages 4 and 7 slept, a Phoenix father stopped a home invasion suspect trying to break through their bedroom window just before 2:00 am. Wednesday. The father shot the man three times, fatally wounding him.
The attempted forced entry occurred in the area of 28th Avenue and Acoma, where the man was previously observed trying to break into cars.
The suspect, who has not been identified, is described as a 35-year-old white male, who was acting irrationally, and appeared to pull a weapon from his pants.
Police say the homeowner, who was simply trying to protect his family, was not arrested.
